Hi! I'M Peggy Reeves with Peggy Reeves Art & Design
Soft, peaceful, textured, and dramatic are often a few of the eclectic words that have described my work. With each piece taking on its own message inspired by a deep faith, songs of inspiration and a desire to express hope, I continue to share my voice through the expression of creating. I've always had a deep need and hunger to create, one that consistently found ways to be filled. In fact, I've often described myself as an "Eclectic Freelance Artist”, with experience in various types of creative contract work like graphic design, faux painting, interior design, writing, speaking and singing. These are all creative experiences that find their way into my art. So, with a long time curiosity to express my creativity on canvas, a Facebook posting for a local art class caught my attention and I finally took the initiative. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the unlimited possibilities in painting. Now, It seems only natural that my creative energy can be fulfilled in one location...a CANVAS!!!
As an artist, I continue to hone my craft through art courses, studying art and the business, and spending endless hours painting.....and painting. It has truly become my passion and a way to express my creativity, my love for design, and most of all my love for the Master Creator, GOD!
My studio and home is in Franklin, TN with my husband Tom and our dog London. I am the proud mom of two children, both married and now blessed to be “Queenie” to six grand kids.

I've always loved fashion and decorating. I can sit and look at design pics for hours and this is definitely a huge part of where I draw inspiration for color and style. I've also been fortunate to travel through Europe and live in England and i'm sure that influences my style too. Although, I believe my deepest inspiration comes from my faith in Christ, music that inspires my faith, and from life learning experiences. This is when things really become inspired and start to flow freely.
Each piece starts with a light to medium application of texture on a quality gallery wrapped canvas. Layers of fine acrylic paints, oil pastels, markings, scratches, words, or other mixed medias are all applied with either pallet knives, brushes, rollers, and other applicators to form a foundational depth to the painting. The direction of each piece is then unified by a more simplistic softer approach of paints, oil pastels, and maybe metallics to create an original piece sealed with varnish for protection and illumination.
